Verification of FAFSA Information

The U.S. Dept. of Education selects certain FAFSA

applications to be verified. This means the school is

required to collect certain documents and income

information to verify the accuracy of the FAFSA

application. Students and parents must comply with

all verification procedures before aid will be disbursed.

Changes in the application information as a result of

the verification process may require an adjustment

to your financial aid package. Failure to submit the

requested documents within the appropriate time

frame may result in a reduction in your financial aid. An

official award notification will be sent upon completion

of verification, either through the mail or electronically.

Reduced Income

If, after completing and submitting the required

financial aid forms, the family suffers a drastic change

of income, please contact the Financial Aid Office. A

drastic change of income is defined as unemployment

for a period of ten 10 weeks or more, divorce or

separation, death, retirement or permanent or total

disability of the major wage earner. In such cases, the

Financial Aid Office will re-evaluate your student’s

financial aid package based on the new,

estimated data. Additional assistance is only awarded

Satisfactory Academic Progress
